WALTHAM, Mass. -- Second-round draft picks do not automatically received guaranteed contracts (heck, some second-round draft picks are lucky to sign at all). But the thin-on-bodies Celtics showed a little faith in second-round pick E'Twaun Moore Friday when they agreed to a guaranteed contract on the first day of training camp.

Moore's agent, Mark Bartelstein, said Friday night that his client's contract was done and in the process of being signed, which would allow Moore to participate in the team's first practice session.

The Celtics drafted Moore with the 55th overall pick in June's draft. During the lockout, he traveled to Italy to work on his game and the team must have liked what it saw to essentially guarantee him a spot on the 15-man roster.
